The Hidden Curriculum and the Child's New Discourse: Beverly Cleary's "Ramona Goes to School."
Benson, Linda
Children's Literature in Education, v30 n1 p9-29 Mar 1999
Examines some of the hegemonic forces at work in the complex social dynamics of the traditionally feminized elementary school setting. Demonstrates how the dominant culture manipulates the character of Ramona, who, if not silenced or entirely subdued by the end of the series, is at least much more civilized according to the norms of the classroom.
